About this project
GREAT NEWS! The project has been successfully funded and the Tattoos have been ordered from the manufacturer! THEY WILL SHIP TO BACKERS ON OCTOBER 15TH WITH PRIORITY MAIL AND SHOULD ARRIVE BY OCTOBER 20TH!
I'm NOT a make-up artist.
Last Halloween I sat and watched numerous YouTube videos on how to apply "Sugar Skull" make-up. These professional make-up artists used expensive make-up, special brushes and spent hours making up a single face. As I sat there painting my wife's face with my Halloween store make-up I thought there must be an easier way. Even if I could get my lines smooth and clean, it was impossible to get them to match on the other half of her face.
Here is a real photo from last year of my best attempt at make-up.
A Faster, Easier and Cheaper way!
Temporary Tattoos are fast, easy and look better than make-up ever could. Every line is perfectly smooth and the color vibrant. Plus they will match on the other side of your face, perfectly!
With a light coat of inexpensive "Halloween Store" white cream make up (not included) applied and allowed to dry, the Tattoos slide right on. You can touch them, lightly rub them and they stay put and will never smear. With the white make-up underneath they actually wash off easier than if they were stuck directly to your skin. So clean up at the end of the night is no more difficult than removing old fashioned make-up. I have made a video with some tips to applying the make-up that I recommend watching before you apply your tattoos. Your Tattoos will also come with an instruction sheet.
What you get for supporting my project!
I have set-up options for various levels of support. You can spend as little as one dollar for a "shout out" on my website, $5 will get you a high quality vinyl sticker, $13 gets you a 7inch by 7 inch Tattoo sheet shipped to your door just in time for Halloween and/or the Day of the Dead. There are also rewards with two tattoo sheets.
Ceramic Sugar Skulls for my top supporters.
I have a kiln and do ceramics in my spare time. I have made only a few of these Sugar Skulls and they are in high demand from my collectors. As of this writing I have only made 6 of them because they take several hours to make. I will never make more than 30 of this design. If you pledge $200 towards my project I will personally make you a signed and numbered limited edition ceramic skull with a lid. Some will use these as a drinking vessel as they relax at their home Tiki Bar, while others will use them in their elaborate Day of the Dead decorations.
Why do I need $1,000? Temporary Tattoos are best ordered in large quantities to get the best price and quality. Ordering a custom single sheet is expensive and is just a cheap ink jet print on some sticky paper. To get a real quality temporary Tattoo they need to be printed on a printing press using specialty paper. This process demands large minimum quantities. I will need to order enough to make them cost effective. Some of the money will be used in making the vinyl stickers and some will be used to pay for my website that will be used to sell the tattoos once the KICKSTARTER orders have been filled. If I get enough orders, I plan on manufacturing a second sheet that has different accessories and colors. Those of you who order two could possibly end up with two different Tattoo sheets.
